Jeet Kune Do weapons and footwork




 Training Video above  performed by Kenneth
One should concentrate on speeding himself up. Mobility and speed is what he should seek for and, in order to increase mobility and lighten his feet, he should get away from the classical flatfooted practice and get the slight crouch with weight on the balls of  his feet and feel the floor like a spring. this is to find firmness and balance and mobility.
The feet should be kept an easy and comfortable distance apart.
Vary the length and speed of your step to confuse the opponent.

Jeet Kune Do Training Method




 Jeet Kune Do Training Video performed by Kenneth 


Bruce Lee's Commentaries of the Martial Way : 
The straight punch is the core of Jeet kune do, but should be reinforced and supported by other angle punches and kicks of like precision.

The straight punch is executed like a western sword fencing without the sword.

Whenever striking with the right lead , it is important to sway ( snap ) slightly to left. The head should slip in the same direction

You cannot use your hands or legs effectively until your feet have put you in a position in which you can do so - the above video will show you how to train , so that you have speed on your feet, and you will be fast on your punch and kick.

A Classical footwork is unrealistic, stay on the balls of your feet and retain the spring ( as shown in the training video above )

Vary the length and step of your step to confuse the opponent ( the training video shown above demonstrates the best training method to accomplished the goal )

Excerpts from Bruce Lee's Commentaries on the Martial Way

I Have given you tools how to use them is up to you 
I can give you tools but you have to developed your own way of using them.
There should be no method of fighting. There should be tools to be use as effectively as possible

Pointers on spinning Kick
In the spin kick you will notice a very good lesson. When you try too much control the movement , You get too hung up on the execution, and therefore you become too tense and your execution is poor.
However if, you are able to forget it , to relax -boom! - it will land right on the target ! When you ease the burden of your mind, you just do it.


THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Jeet Kune Do - On hitting the heavy Bag - Training Tips that are effective on Actual Combat





The fact that the bag can't strike you back -" perfecting faults"
Always keep well covered and never leave yourself open for one moment.

The power of the punch and kick comes not, as so many people imagine, from vigor with which the blow is struck, but by correct contact at the right spot at the right moment, and with feet and body in correctly position and balanced.

Move! Move! Move around the whole time, side stepping, feinting varying your kicks and blows to the movement.

Remember that the body is an integral part of the kick and punch, it is not only the leg and arm that delivers them.

Jeet Kune Do Training Method




Every attack you made should be penetrating, disturbing your opponent's rhythm and bringing pressure upon his morale. Remember though that your hand is not a hatchet to chop your opponent down. rather they are keys to unlock your opponent's defense, a different lock requires a different key - Bruce Lee

It is easy to learn the mechanics of an attack, but to apply that attack in time with the opponent and at a correct distance takes a lot of practice

JKD Spin Hook Kick




(1) Start with your hands held high on an on guard position
(2) Turn your body half around and head sharply to spot your target over your shoulder
(3) Chamber your knee to 45 degrees angle
(4) begin the execution of the kick , reaching your leg from 2:00 o' clock to full lock out position
(5) hitting with the face of the foot. At impact, tighten the area of contact.
(6) Chamber through to 10:00 o' clock, and return to the fighting stance.
Tips for a great kick: Think of your body as a whirlwind when executing this kick. Momentum is the key, as well as speed, and the full extension from 2:00 o clock to 10:00 o' clock.

Remember , with spinning kick, it is best to initiate your attack with a safe kick, then follow through with the spin.

Jeet Kune Do Principles and Strategies




The art of offensive defense Though your style should be a combination of offense and defense, I often stress that offense should be more emphasized. This does not mean that we should neglect defense; actually as you will later realize , into every Jeet kune do offense, defense is also welded in to form what I term " defensive offense " - Bruce Lee

In Attacking, you must never be halfhearted. Your main concern is with correct and most determined execution of your offensive. You should be like steel spring ready at the slightest opening to set the explosive charge of your dynamic attack.

JKD Jeet Kune Do - the styless style


In order to cope with what is, one must have the awareness and flexibility of styleless style. When I say " styleless style ", I mean a style that has the totality without partiality; in short, it is a circle without circumference where every conceivable line is included. Because, after all , an opponent is capable of throwing all lines and if one is partial only to dealing with the straight , then he will run into friction with just the right line that will screw up his straight line. Let's remember the word relationship: To do a techniques is to study oneself in action with the opponent. From the teachings of Bruce Lee - Founder Jeet Kune Do.

Jeet Kune Do conditioning training Video XXV


Remember that a martial art man is not merely a physical exponent of some prowess he may have been gifted with in the first place.

All that training is to round him up to be a complete man. - Bruce Lee

Truth cannot be structured or confined.
A style is a classified response to one's chosen inclination

The fluidity of a martial artist  seeks can be best describe by the story of the centipede. The many footed creature was asked how it managed to walk on its feet.

Classical forms dull your creativity, condition and render frozen your sense of freedom. You no longer "be" but merely "do".

My purpose in creating jeet kune do was not to compare with other branches of martial arts. Anything that becomes a branch would induce bad feeling. Once there is a formation of branch, then things seem to stop. Students would labor for regulations and rules. Then the meaning of martial art would be lost. Even today, I dare not say that I have reached any state of achievement. I'm still learning , for learning is boundless.

Like a man's body , you would not say that your hand was better than your leg or vice versa ; you have  to coordinate the two , to use them both skillfully in order to produce a satisfactory result.
